Artbound presents the pARTy, and this time we’re giving you a roof-raising rewind to the 90’s - 90210 to be exact. Aside from the stellar line-up of performers that will be hitting the stage, our DJ will spin the best of the decade that gave us everything from Pearl Jam and Nirvana to NKOTB and yes, Color Me Badd… Remember when Kelly got the Quintet to ‘sing for their supper’ at the Peach Pit? 90210 is our 4th annual fundraiser that celebrates the power of the arts. 100% of the proceeds will be used to integrate and sustain our local and international initiatives.
Artbound started by fundraising and building a village for the arts in Kenya. As we continue to support that project, efforts are also directed towards building a sustainable village in Rajasthan, India in early 2014. This is where ART Does GOOD. See you at the pARTy!
